1994 BMW 3 Series 325i 4dr Sedan


If you love to drive and truly appreciate what that means, you can't find a better sedan for the money. The E36 chassis with a five-speed is superior to many of the sport sedans that are sold new in the US today. The car will do an honest 150, 60 in second gear, and gets 26 mpg in all around driving. I live in Wisconsin, and with snow tires it handles better than a front wheel drive car with 'average' tires. Note, a stock 325i will not perform on par with the above, my car has a Dinan chip and B&B exhaust that increase the horsepower/torque to 210/210 (a rather conservative estimate), raise the rev limit safely to 7000 rpm and eliminate the top speed governor (normally 128 mph).

Best Features

B&B stainless exhaust-expensive but worth it. OZ 16" rims w/225/50 Z rated Dunlops. Bilstein shocks and adjustable camber. Heated seats in the winter, sunroof, auto up/down windows, 12" Infinity subwoofer w/MTX amp.

Worst Features

Interior materials, while far superior to anything from the US, are not up to par with other BMWs (5s and 7s) or Japanese luxury cars. Not a lot of rear seat room.
